Raven Queen

Unaligned deity

The name of the god of death is long forgotten, but she is called the Raven Queen. She is the spinner of fate and the patron of winter. She marks the end of each mortal life, and mourners call upon her during funeral rites, in the hope that she will guard the departed from the curse of undeath. She expects her followers to: Hold no pity for those who suffer and die, for death is the natural end of life. Bring down the proud who try to cast off the chains of fate. As the instrument of the Raven Queen, you must punish hubris where you find it. She expects her followers to abide by these commandments:

  • Hold no pity for those who suffer and die, for death is the natural end of life.
  • Bring down the proud who try to cast off the chains of fate. Punish hubris wherever you find it.
  • Watch for the cults of Orcus and stamp them out whenever they arise. The Demon Prince of the Undead seeks to claim the Raven Queen’s throne.

The Raven Queen has never had a church; she has never had a need for one. Whenever a loved one falls ill, their family become her followers. When a soldier falls in battle, her name is on their lips. Though she has no establishment dedicated to her, everyone has called upon her. Death touches everyone. Shrines dedicated to the Raven Queen can be found across Kordil, in its crypts and graveyards.

The elves of Selanth, often referred to as Dusk Elves, have taken to worship of the Raven Queen. They are viewed with derision and scorn by the followers of Corellon, Lolth, and Sehanine. Mostly they are regarded with barely concealed pity; viewed as hollowed-out shells beholden only to a backwards animism and fealty to the Raven Queen.
